WE ARE NO ONE'S ENEMY by imanwow

The 3000 years old Legacy of peace, carved on the stone in old Persia.... Remind me of The words that were written by the poet Saadi, so many years ago: "The children of Adam are limbs to each other, having been created of one essence and soul. If one member is afflicted with pain, Other members uneasy will remain. If you have no sympathy for human pain,The name of human you cannot retain

Gate of All Nations by imanwow
Gate of All Nations
the Gate of All Nations or Gate of Xerxes palace is located in the ruins of the ancient city of Persepolis, Iran.

The construction of the Stairs of All Nations and the Gate of All Nations was ordered by the Achaemenid king Xerxes I (486-465), the successor of the founder of Persepolis, Darius I the Great.[1]


The structure consisted of one large room whose roof was supported by four stone columns with bell-shaped bases. Parallel to the inner walls of this room ran a stone bench, interrupted at the doorways. The outside walls, made of broad mud block, were bedecked with frequent niches. Each of the three walls, on the east, west, and south, had a very large stone doorway. A pair of massive bulls secured the western entrance; two Lamassu in the Assyrian style, albeit, of colossal proportions, stood at the eastern doorway. Engraved above each of the four colossi is a trilingual inscription attesting to Xerxes having built and fulfilled the gate. The doorway on the south, opening toward the Apadana, is the widest of the three. Pivoting devices found on the inner corners of all the doors indicate that they must have had two-leaved doors, which were possibly made of wood and covered with sheets of ornamented metal.

Persian Carpet Warehouse, Shiraz Bazaar by imanwow
Persian Carpet Warehouse, Shiraz Bazaar

Vakil Bazaar (Persian: بازار وکیل‎‎) is the main bazaar of Shiraz, Iran, located in the historical center of the city.

It is thought that the market originally was established by the Buwayhids in the 11th century AD, and was completed mainly by the Atabaks of Fars, and only was renamed after Karim Khan Zand in the 18th century.

The Bazaar has beautiful courtyards, caravansarais, bath houses, and old shops which are deemed among the best places in Shiraz to buy all kinds of Persian rugs, spices, copper handicrafts and antiques.

Like other middle eastern Bazaars there are a few numbers of mosques and Imamzadehs constructed adjacent or behind the Bazaar.
